What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

Alright, the Wagovan has been at the car doctor all day and they have some good news and some bad news.

The good news is everything I said was OK was OK.

They checked the timing, valves, manifold vacuum, distributor, and carburetor tune and they were happy with most of it. They adjusted the carb and timing a bit, but overall were very happy with the setup.


The bad news is they think the problem is the strainer in the tank. The reason this is bad news is I don’t buy it.

They do, however, claim this is something they’ve encountered before and the sock/ strainer was the problem.


Skepticism aside, I told them to go for it. Bit pricey, but this close to the trip I don’t want to deal with it.

Wish us luck!
